  • Late summer and fall offer a third growing season for the home gardener, though both new and experienced gardeners often overlook the opportunity to extend the bounty of the home garden. Spring gardening is marked by relief that winter is over, with the anticipation of warmer weather. Summer gardening brings its own joys, with longer days and the natural cycle of rain and sun that helps plants yield ripe, delicious fruits and vegetables. But with some planning, fall can provide just as much enjoyment as spring and summer, and you can extend the harvest well into the cooler months.

  • Lately I have been taking my dog with me when I go to the drive-through at the bank.  And in case you are wondering, she is a pretty big dog, about 50 pounds or so.

  • Some people do not want to recognize me as a minister because I did not go to seminary, which is alright with me. A lot of people did not want to recognize Peter and John either.
    The people were always trying to put them down. Peter preached the first sermon in the New Testament, which we will see had great results in the book of Acts.
    Acts 2:41 says, “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.”

  • Terry and Fonza Pearson of Bowling Green announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Meredith Pearson, to Adam Loafman.

  • Chris Simmons and Sarah Stump announce the birth of their son, Bryan Christopher Simmons Jr., born June 27, 2011, at Baptist Hospital East.

  • I just got a call from a reader in Taylorsville who was seeking an ID on a pest that was stinging her in the blackberry patch. She described the offender in very human terms – it looked like it was wearing glasses, had a green jacket on, little ears, etc. I could see the saddleback stinging caterpillar in my mind’s eye as she continued.
